Tributes to retiring local CoI Bishop
The Bishop of Limerick, Killaloe and Ardfert is to retire on October 31, 2021. The Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, the Most Rev John McDowell, said: “I wish to thank Bishop Kenneth Kearon for his very distinctive contributions to the work of the House of Bishops and to the life of the Church of Ireland.
“Bishop Kearon brought with him an unparalleled knowledge and experience of the Anglican Communion which he generously shared with many of us during the course of the last six years.”
Archbishop Michael Jackson, who is the Archbishop of Dublin, added: “I would like to commend Bishop Kenneth Kearon for his positive contribution to the life of the Church of Ireland in the diocese of Limerick, Killaloe and Ardfert and beyond.
“The retirement of Bishop Kearon will bring significant structural change to the diocese. Both the bishop now retiring and the people of Limerick, Killaloe and Ardfert have done sustained work in building a firm foundation for their future together. They are to be commended on the spirit in which this work has been carried out collaboratively. There will be much to do in the coming months and years but I wish to assure them of my support as they travel this road together.”
